A Local Car for the Silent Highway: Alfred Deakin Eco-Innovation Lectures
Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on July 17th, 2009
It won’t be long until we all drive the silent electric highway.
Richard Canny presents a compelling demonstration of the near future of the family car. Canny is CEO of TH!NK, the Norwegian company that produced its first prototype TH!NKCity electric car in 1991. TH!NK is a car company that aims to change the way people think about cars, by designing emission free and highly efficient modern-city vehicles to meet consumer needs, producing environmentally friendly vehicles in a small-scale ‘low carbon’ production centre.
TH!NK epitomises the significant transformation of technology and business that is emerging as low-carbon innovators harness creativity to redesign not just the car but the way that vehicles will be built and used. This is a company from a country of less than 5 million people that is set to change the meaning of ‘sustainable mobility’.
Date: Wednesday 22 July 2009 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
